Brand new for the spring term
Explore human evolution in our new exhibition Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story, an amazing journey through time, which brings to life the people who occupied ancient Britain.

Museum palaeontologist Professor Chris Stringer, a world-leading human origins expert, says: ‘From the earliest human fossils in Britain to one of the oldest wooden tools in the world, you'll be surprised by the history hidden beneath your feet. The story behind the humans who inhabited ancient Britain gives us an exciting glimpse into our past and leads us to reflect on our future.'

Our free, downloadable education guide helps your students get the most from the exhibition. Why not create a structured learning day by booking one of our engaging evolution themed learning activities?

Talk to our scientists, ask questions about their research and find out what motivates them. A unique opportunity for your students to be inspired by work going on at the Museum.
